Annual NIS staff vs parents football match

The annual NIS staff vs parents football match is coming soon. Last year’s rain-drenched game saw the parents emerge with a comfortable 2-0 win.

We are looking at playing on Sat Sep 1st (before the NIC BBQ) at NIS, kick-off around 10.30am.

Please email robbattye@nanjing-school.com if you are interested in playing.

 

House captains wanted

Welcome back everyone.

The House championship will be starting soon and all three houses need student captains to help organise teams for this year’s events.

Please contact your house leader if you are interested in becoming a house captain. Next Friday is the House assembly, so time is short.

Captains are needed for both G6-8 and G9-12.
